Good Stuff is the sixth studio album by new wave band the B-52's, released in 1992. This is the only B-52's album in which vocalist Cindy Wilson does not appear.

A moderate radio hit had been achieved with the title track called "Good Stuff" and the album itself was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album at the 1993 Grammys, but lost to Tom Waits' Bone Machine.
